Chocolate Mocha Chia Pudding

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for ya! Chocolate Mocha Chia Pudding! This chia pudding makes a lovely breakfast to start the day, or afternoon snack. And I also love to have it post-workout for a healthy, filling and protein packed meal.

The flavours of this chia pudding is exactly as described. Chocolatey and mocha-y. It’s made by mixing chia with almond milk, with a heaping spoonful of cocoa powder and a shot of espresso. Then topped with coconut yogurt and fresh blueberries. It’s a bit like a latte, but in chia pudding form.

Delicious Chia Pudding

Chocolate and coffee together are a premium combo, and it tastes so delicious in this Chocolate Mocha Chia Pudding. As you can see, I have not skimped on the cocoa powder in this recipe adding a heaping spoonful of it. I wanted this chia pudding to be rich and velvety, like eating a dessert! I’ve definitely got a sweet tooth, so I’ll take any opportunity to eat dessert-style for breaky – while still keeping it healthy.  I also love the espresso shot in this chia pudding. It so well complements the velvety chocolate taste, and adds a little energy boost to start your day.

When making chia pudding I usually recommend to use homemade almond milk. It adds a richness and creaminess that can’t be achieved with store-bought milks. However, with the addition of chocolate and espresso in this blend the store-bought almond milk works perfectly.

I’ve paired this chocolate mocha chia pudding with a few spoonfuls of coconut yogurt and topped with fresh berries. It’s a lovely combo. I often get asked which brand of coconut yogurt I buy. TBH, it really depends where you’re living, and what brands are available to you. So, I recommend instead to look at the ingredients list to find your most optimal coconut yogurt brand. I try to buy coconut yogurt with minimal ingredients (no added sweetener or fillers). The ingredients should be simple and easy to read. My favourite brand here in France is called Happy Coco.

As for the fruits to top – you can top with whatever fruits you have handy. I’ve used fresh blueberries, but strawberries, raspberries or blackberries would be equally delicious. I’ve also topped it with banana or kiwi in the past and it’s tasty as can be.

Another great thing about this recipe is that it can be made ahead. In fact, it’s sort of preferred when it comes to chia pudding recipes because it takes at least 10-20 minutes for the chia to absorb the liquids. And if you pop it in a jar like mine it’s an easy breakfast to go. I love chia pudding mid-week because it’s quick and transportable. Whether you want it for breakfast or snack time it’s an easy recipe to enjoy at home or on the go.
